NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police are urging residents not to leave their cars unlocked and unoccupied with engines running after most of the vehicles stolen in New Castle County in a month were found that way.

Troopers said in a news release Wednesday that of a dozen vehicles that were stolen in the past month in the county, eight were left with engines running, making them easy targets.

Police offered other tips to prevent car theft, including:

Don’t leave a spare key near your car.

Park in well-lighted, public areas.

Don’t leave valuable personal property in your car.
